    Quote:We have had some very interesting names. I think my favorites have been Birdie-num-nums who was a silkie and also turned out to be a roo. Not terribly commanding with the name. And we currently have a Dorking hen named Pizza Steve. Gotta love kids. Can't wait for dark so I can candle!

    I use mobile all the time, new to the app part here. I like mobile better than desktop. Overloads me with what to look at and do. My husband says i am on too much as is, it's worse than my going to the coop and watching.

    Yeah, i figured they'd probably be impossible to figure out haha I'll go back in and ask. I wonder if the silvee and brown ones at least are maybe Wyandottes? Or are there other breeds that can be chipmunk amd silver?

    Quote:Silver Phoenix and Silver Gray Dorkings have a chipmonk pattern as chicks as well. Phoenix have gray/slate legs and the dorkings have 5 toes with yellow legs. True Araucanas (Black Breasted Red variety) are a chipmonk but you are not likely to find those. They would be "rumpless" i.e. no tail. I don't know bout other breeds. Those are just some I have raised that start out chipmonked.

    Thanks! Didn't see slate legs or 5 toes but didn't look that close i guess. But I'm also not sure the store was gettkng any of those in and aren't dorkings kinda small? Even if not, they were in with the brown ones so that kinda limits it. Wonder if Wyandottes look like that?
